  1. Hi all, in 2008 I took out a secured loan of over £10k from Welcome and within a few years struggled to make the payments. The loan went to Cabot on Welcome's demise and then to Ascent. 2 years ago, instead of consulting this site(!), I started paying Ascent less than £100 a month (don't want to be specific, in case they're on here) and this has brought the amount down. The balance is still over £10k and there is a charge on my property. Having spoken to Ascent, I have asked for a settlement figure and they want and income/expenditure thing (not something I trust, it's just to
  2. Dear Caggers, need some advice on this. We took unsecured loan back in 2010 for £9000 with Black Horse. Everything was fine until we run into financial dificulties in October 2012. Wrote to black horse asking for reduced payment plan and that was agreed for 6 months. The last payment we made was in January 2013, after which we contacted blackhorse again to lower reduced payments as we could not cope. They never responded to us. Two weeks ago we received letter from Ascent collections stating they acting on behalf of Blackhorse to collect the debt, followed
  3. Irwin Mitchell took me court and gained a CCJ against me 5 years ago. Payment was offered and excepted and has never been missed. However, today they sent me a statement and despite paying over £70 a month I owe £3k more than when I started and they now require me to complete an I&E form. Do I have to do this seeing it is a CCJ ?
  4. Hello, has anyone heard of Ascent financial services? They want to come and do a review of a relative of mine as they have arrears with the Halifax. They made a plan to sort the arrears on phone with Halifax and next thing get a letter from Ascent. Do they have to undertake this review as they really don't want to and want to stick to the agreement they have with Halifax. Thanks.
  5. I had a credit card from sygma on which I owe £2335. they obtained a ccj on 1 April and interim charging order on 17th May. I am in the process of declaring bankruptcy and have now received a notice of a full charging application to be heard in court on 14th July. I have been receiving financial advice re: bankruptcy, and have been advised to pay this before the bankruptcy. I have the £700 for the bankruptcy. Should I write now and offer £700 and the rest instalments? Also should I ask them to accept my offer in writing and put that when it is paid they
  6. Hi I currently have mortgage arrears and have a court order for suspension of eviction in place where i have to pay extra each month. In December my payment was a bit late but it has been made, I have received a letter, dated 24.12.2013, from my mortgage company that they have passed my details to a company called Ascent Contact. This company have now visited my home and left a letter asking me to contact them to "discuss my arrears". the letter states there is a charge of £70+vat if I meet them, if i refuse to meet them a charge of £40+vat will be debited to my loan to cover the cost
  7. I had a loan from Black Horse back in 2007, I got in to difficulty pretty quickly as my bonus got unexpectably cut. I made an arrangement and kept this up until I was made redundant in May 2009. Since then on and off I have been making payments. My account was passed to Ascent early 2012 and I made an arrangement to pay £50.00 per month. At this time I had once again been made redundant and was living off my redundancy. I managed to keep this up until Nov 2012 when the money ran out. I had a conversation with Ascent where i assertained that my £50 was being
